Raw or Raw Fusion – Vegan, Gluten-Free + Morning Routine Idea We just started another 21 Day Raw Foods Challenge with a group of 120 people on Facebook. We host these periodically and it’s free to join, just request at this link. I have to admit that my biggest challenge to staying high raw is […]

Lately I’m on a detox due to an overgrowth of Candida Albicans, a very insidious yeast that can cause a variety of inflammation-related disorders, from IBS to sinus and allergy symptoms, brain fog etc. Unfortunately, mainstream medicine has not done much to address this problem; in fact, the excessive use of antibiotics in treating infections is one of the main factors in candida’s “population explosion”.
I successfully got this under control about 20 years ago but the Standard American Diet is very yeast-friendly, allowing proliferation through an excess of gluten, sugar and molds found in common allergens like dairy, soy and peanuts.
When I was in the final stages of getting the Raw Fusion book series finished I traveled to Arizona for the Raw Spirit Festival (2010) where I met a very talented chef, Karen Osborne. She made a spectacular dessert for one of the events and I asked her if she’d like to contribute to the recipes portion of the book.
Her Carob Crispy Candies are so simple and satisfying that I include them in the “Cravings Conquerors” category. It’s hard to believe that something that tastes this good can provide such health benefits!
Providing you have these items on hand, these candies take only minutes to prepare and a couple of hours to set in the fridge.
